Here’s an invention that will spare you the inconvenience of satisfying those late night hunger pangs. Expanding beyond their individual pop-up machines islandwide, Chef-in-Box opens its second vending machine café at Ang Mo Kio MRT station which offers a unique selection of drinks, cuisines and snacks for you to choose from. Why go out of your way to travel to the nearest (or is it really that near) supper spot just to grab that dinner you didn’t have the time for when you could conveniently dispense a meal from Chef-in-Box once you alight from the train and be well headed on your way home to have your tummy filled? No detours needed.
With an existing Vendcafé nestled in a HDB estate in Seng Kang, Chef-in-Box is set to open more Vendcafés at MRT stations with its third outlet opening at Lakeside MRT next week. Definitely one for busy bees on- the-go, they would be delighted to know that even as a “convenience meal”, their tastebuds would still be tingled as they are presented the option of being able to choose from a generous portion of local favourites or go international with Thai, Japanese and Spanish delights, all for below $6.
With the new outlet at Ang Mo Kio MRT Station, customers at this outlet will have the privilege of being the first to try Chef-in-Box newly launched dishes which will be sure to satisfy any cravings you have. If you’d prefer a taste of Singapore’s delights that day, you may want to opt for the Fried Carrot Cake ($4.00), Chicken Char Siew with Rice ($4.00) and more.

Chef-in-Box did not forget those who would prefer a full meal of an appetiser and dessert to accompany your main dish. Also available for you to complete this full-course would be classic starters such as the Egg and Potato Salad, Mushroom Soup and Minestrone Soup and desserts such as Mango Pudding, Mango Pomelo Sago, Cheng Tng and Black Sesame Paste to satisfy that sweet tooth.
There will also be a coffee and drinks machine and a snack machine that offers unique and international selections for those who are feel like they need a little mid-day perk-me-up. Besides that, what could be more attractive than unique Korean/Japanese snack inventions that can’t be found easily in our local supermarkets? Some choices bound to excite you would be Arizona Tea (available in different flavours), M&M cookies, Pocky from Japan and Sweet Potato Chips from Korea, just to name a few.
A fun fact about the Chef-in-Box Vendcafé that those constantly on-the-go would be delighted to hear? They utilise the latest cook chill technology which means that the dispensing time is cut from 4 minutes to a mere 30 seconds. Also, the entire store is the first in the market to be 100% cashless which means that you could have your food ready with a simple tap from your Android Pay, Apple Pay, contactless credit cards, EzLink or NETS Flashpay. For those who thrive on efficiency and convenience, imagine this – it takes 2 seconds for you to tap your card and 30 seconds for your food to be dispensed and you would receive your food in less than 1 minute. We dare to say that this is efficiency at its finest.
For those who are planning to head down to check out Chef-in-Box VendCafé at Ang Mo Kio, in conjunction with the launch earlier this week, the brand will be giving out 1000 limited edition Chef-in-Box VendCafé NETS Flashpay cards from 13th – 17th June 2017. You can be assured that they are definitely designed attractively so do head down to Ang Mo Kio’s Chef-in-Box as there are only 200 redemptions per day and will start at 10am, so do get queuing!
